World Country El Salvador

About the world country El Salvador, its location, size, population, and who is in power.



Location: On the Pacific coast of Central America, between Guatemala and Honduras. Size: 8,124 sq. mi. (21,041 sq. km.). Population: 4,991,000.

Who Really Rules: El Salvador is in the midst of a civil war. The U.S.-backed "reformist" military junta, which overthrew another military regime in October, 1979, drifted to the right soon after taking power, so once again power is in the hands of El Salvador's large land-owners. Unsafe in their homeland, many members of the Salvadoran elite live in southern Florida, commuting to El Salvador only to complete necessary business transactions. The opposition has coalesced into the Democratic Revolutionary Front, which includes small-business owners, organized labor, peasant organizations, Catholic activists, and armed guerrilla movements.
